The next pattern in my framegurumi line is a Frankenstein Framegurumi!  Since my husband and I really go all out decorating for Halloween, I was super excited when he suggested I make this one.  The great thing about this framegurumi is it can be really cute or spooky depending on the picture you put in it.  So it works for Halloween decor no matter how you like to decorate.  I hope you enjoy!

Pumpkin Girl

I was looking for a quick and easy project to do in my free time, and didn’t want anything too complicated, but wanted to be original.  Since it’s Halloween I thought I would try to make something to go with the holiday and came up with this cute little girl.  She is pretty little, only 6″ tall.  This was a nice stress relief from classes and getting stuck on a new pokemon pattern.  She’s sitting with all my other Halloween decorations and is a nice fit.

Assembly:

For the pumpkin, I left a long piece of yarn to sew around the pumpkin to create the contours. 

Attach the head to the pumpkin after creating contours.  Attach arms and legs.

For the hair, I created a rim that I sewed on to her first that was

Scary Taco Tarts

After making all the traditional shapes we had (black cat, ghost,  witch, pumkin, and moon)  we got creative with the coloring and made Garfield and a striped ghost that has style.  Sadly, these shapes went quickly, but were yummy!

Picture 04291 box of refridgerated pie crust

1/2 pound of hamburger meat

1 can refried beans

mexican cheese

2 egg whites(or however many colors you will be using)

1 tsp of chili powder

1 tsp of red pepper

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1 1/2 tsps. of taco bell seasoning

food coloring

halloween cookie cutters

Directions:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cook meat in a large skillet on medium heat and add spices and refried beans.  Roll out  pie crusts and use cookie cutters to cut desired shapes.  You will need two of each shape to create one tart.  Place 1 tablespoon of the mixture onto one of each pair and sprinkle cheese on top.  Place the second shape on top and press edges down to seal.  Put egg whites into separate bowls and color as desired with food coloring.  Take a brush and paint the tarts as desired.  Place in oven on greased cookie sheet until crispy.  Kind of dry so you might want to have a salsa dip or something on the side.

 

Frankencake

Picture 0425 1 box of yellow cake

1 can of vanilla frosting

green and black food coloring

ziploc bag

 

Directions:  Bake cake as directed by box…let cool.  Take cake out of pan and cut shapes for head, nose, and ears and place them accordingly.  Take some of the frosting and mix with green food dye in a bowl.  In a separate bowl mix frosting with black food dye.  Cover the cake with green icing and black icing as desired.  For the stitches use the ziploc bag and cut a hole in the bottom of one bag to use to squeeze out the icing in the desired shape.

This was a difficult cake to make because of all the pieces.  However, the end product turned out really cute and tasty.

Spiderweb Pizza

Picture 0424Pillsbury pizza dough roll

mozarella cheese

8 ounces of alfredo sauce

8 ounces of pizza sauce

toppings(we used chicken, spiced with garlic, chili pepper and crushed red pepper.  Also a few jalapenos)

plastic spider

ziploc bag

Directions:  Preheat oven as directed. Grease cookie sheet.  Unroll pizza dough onto cookie sheet. Cook toppings if needed.  Place into oven for 4-5 minutes.  Take out and add toppings, then mozzarella cheese.  Pour the pizza sauce over top.  Place alfredo sauce in the ziploc bag.  Cut a small hole on one of the corners.  Squeeze alfredo sauce out until you get your desired look.  Finish baking until crust is golden brown.

This was one of my favorite halloween dishes we have made so far.  It tasted really yummy and looked cool too.

Mummy Dogs

package of hot dogs

tube of crescent rolls

mustard

Dip:

Dijon Mustard

Mayonaise

Oregano

Directions:  Break hot dogs in half.  Flatten out crescent rolls into square and cut thin strips.  Take the strips and wrap around hot dogs as desired.  Grease cookie sheet and place in oven according to crescent roll directions.  While that is cooking mix the ingredients of the dip together.  When mummy dogs are done.  Take a ziploc bag and put a little bit of mustard in it and cut a small slit at the end of the bag to help put eyes on the mummies.  Simple and yummy!

Beau didn’t listen when I told him to wait before I came up with the ziploc bag idea and his eyes came out a little off but still look cool.  They were really yummy and the dip was surprisingly tasty also.  However, I think there is such a thing as too many hot dogs in ones tummy at a time.  I got so full!
